It’s just plain easier to pass out beer bottles to the crew, and there are times when it’s more economical to serve beer in plastic cups – or perhaps you have a good reason (beer pong anyone?) but for a true beer connoisseur it has to be beer in a glass. Nothing else will do . . . and make sure its in the correct glass please.
Here are the reasons why you should drink beer in a glass:
In a nutshell:
- When you drink from a beer bottle you rob yourself of the true aroma of the beer – and when 70% of taste relies on our sense of smell – you’re also robbing yourself from the taste of the brew.
- Beer glasses allow a “head” of foam to form and the carbonation assists with the sense of smell (and taste – see item 1) as well as the “mouth feel.”
- When we can see the clarity, color and carbonation of the beer it enhances our enjoyment.
